Best MG82 Warzone Loadout

When it comes to looking for an alternative to an assault rifle (AR) in Warzone, light machine guns (LMG) are viable alternatives to use on Caldera and Rebirth Island. With Season 3 on the horizon and a new dose of weapon balancing expected, the MG82 from Black Ops Cold War could become a popular choice in the loadouts of players.

Armed with a fast rate of fire, the LMG can shred through armour with ease but its recoil can prove difficult to tame in long-range engagements.

With that said, find the best MG82 Warzone loadout and the best attachments to equip onto the LMG in this guide!

What Is The Best MG82 Warzone Loadout?

As a long-standing member of the Warzone arsenal, we've had plenty of time to find the strongest combination of attachments to use. Check out the full list in the table below.

Agency Suppressor
16.4" Task Force
Axial Arms 3x
Field Agent Grip
Rear Grip
Serpent Wrap

This particular build improves various elements of the MG 82, allowing it to contend with a variety of ARs and other LMGs in long-range combat. The Serpent Wrap is the star of the show, improving aim-down sight speed allowing you to react to any incoming threats as fast as possible.

Other than the immense rate of fire, the MG 82 is easily one of the very best LMGs to use in Warzone. Although mobility levels aren't the highest, you will rarely find yourself attempting to sprint around the map when attempting to tame the recoil.

The damage range isn't the highest either, but with a number of attachments capable of addressing this issue, the MG82 can excel in competitive mid-range and long-distance duels during a match.

This particular build shreds through any opposition that will stand in your way of a trip on board the victory helicopter.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.4" Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

The combination of muzzle and barrel will be familiar to players that are in tune to the metagame. Providing significant improvements to bullet velocity and damage range, the MG 82 becomes incredibly powerful in mid-range and long-distance duels, even against the likes of the CR-56 AMAX.

The Field Agent Grip gives a slight increase in movement speed and while it may not seem like a lot, it could be the difference between dodging an incoming wave of gunfire or being sent on a premature trip to the Gulag.

Best MG82 Warzone Perks and Equipment

With the perfect set of attachments equipped, no MG 82 Warzone loadout is complete without a solid set of Perks and Equipment. In order to get the upper hand over any opposition you may encounter during a match, here are the best Perks and Equipment to use.


There are many variations of equipment that feature in the loadouts of Warzone players, but this particular combo, may seem a little unorthodox.

  • Lethal: Thermite
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

Thermite is the perfect piece of equipment to deal a prolonged dose of high damage to an opponent. The fire produced by the thermite is a sure-fire way of ensuring the enemy is low on health before the MG 82 can finish them of in just a few bullets.

Smoke Grenades are rarely used in Warzone, making them especially useful to get out of any sticky situations or to provide a wall of cover when attempting to move into safety.


Due to a lack of changes to the Perks, the vast majority of Warzone loadouts feature the same three because they are so strong. Here are the best ones to choose from.

  • EOD (Perk 1)
  • Overkill (Perk 2)
  • Amped (Perk 3)

As always, EOD provides an increase in explosive resistance which is ideal if grenades are falling at your feet. Overkill enables you to select two primary weapons in the same loadout, meaning you can create the ultimate Warzone loadout capable of dealing with any kind of scenario.

The last Perk we selected is Amped. When equipped, Amped increases weapon swap speed, ideal if an enemy ambushes you at close-quarters where the MG 82 isn't exactly the best weapon of choice. Having the ability to quickly switch weapons is easily the best asset to possess when reaction times can often be the difference between life and death.

Is The MG82 Good In Warzone?

Despite nerfs shortly after its arrival, the MG82 is still a viable option if you're looking for something that isn't an AR. In my opinion, the fast rate of fire is perfect for an aggressive style of play and with many popular weapons likely to receive nerfs in the near future, adapting to this particular LMG could give you a huge advantage over the opposition.
